Roseanne Barr’s hit ABC sitcom may have been canceled after she made offensive comments on Twitter, but she still might be able to make it big — in the porn industry.

Recently launched adult-entertainment studio XBlaze has extended an offer to Barr to star in the maiden scene in its upcoming BBW specialty line, XXXLBlaze, and is willing to pony up a cool $150,000 to the “Roseanne” star for the job.

In a letter to Barr dated Tuesday, XBlaze CEO Jeff Dillon wrote, “Part of what makes you unique as an actress, entrepreneur and media personality is your attitude, specific beliefs and openness in saying exactly what you think and feel. Sometimes that can get you into trouble, especially in this politically correct world we now live in. “

Dillon continued, “While this is not your usual brand of mainstream entertainment, we are certain that someone like you, a superstar who still VERY influential in today’s pop culture, can pull off the performance of a lifetime as an adult entertainer in an industry that allows its stars to be themselves.”

XBlaze is billed as a “weed-infused adult film studio,” which might prove to be an added allure for Barr, who has been public about her marijuana use.

In a press release, XBlaze’s Dillon said, “Roseanne Barr is an icon who has been part of the American pop culture landscape for over 30 years, and we want to celebrate her brilliance and unique talents with a showcase scene for XXXLBlaze.”

Dillon added, “She would be quite welcome in the adult industry, a place that understands and embraces outspoken, flamboyant and different kinds of people who speak their minds.”

After proving a big ratings success for ABC, “Roseanne,” which had been renewed for a second season, was canceled last month.

The cancellation came after Barr suggested that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”

“muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted in response to a post about Jarrett.

Barr apologized, but “Roseanne” was swiftly canceled, with ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey saying, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

In the release announcing the offer, XBiz’s Dillon noted, “We do not condone or judge what Miss Barr has said in the past. We just want to give her a job.”

This actually isn’t Barr’s first job offer in the adult entertainment industry. In 2013, after Barr announced her intention to abandon traditional show business and transition into “geriatric porn,” Vivid Entertainment founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch told TheWrap that he’d be wide-open to helping Barr achieve celebrity GILF status.

“We would love to work with her,” Hirsch said. “She’s an iconic comedian who changed the world of television.”
